Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Peel the root celery and cut into half-inch thick slices. Add oil and salt to both sides. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  2. Mix together coconut and flour, and sprinkle on the root celery. Perhaps add additional oil on top.
  3. Roast in oven for 30 minutes or more until the breading has turned a nice color and the celery is soft.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the beans. Trim and cut into nicely sized pieces. Sauté in butter for 5 minutes on medium high heat. Add cream and spices.
  5. Lower the heat and let simmer until the cream thickens a bit. Add finely chopped parsley and 1-2 squeezed garlic cloves before serving.
  6. Char the lemon. Cut into halves and place with cut surface down in a hot and non-greased pan. Press until the lemon has turned a nice color. Squeeze lemon juice on top of the breaded celery and serve.

Tip

Root celery is a great alternative to potatoes, and prepared like in this recipe it will be a nice side dish for meat, fish or poultry. Try shredded cheese instead of coconut for the breading.
